https://youtu.be/ErVNcJfSpnQ

Caris LeVert, PG/SG, Michigan Wolverines

  • 21 yrs. old
  • 6’7″, 191 lbs.
  • Season Stats: 16.4 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 4.9 APG, 28.9 PER

Injuries to his foot have ruined Caris LeVert‘s opportunity to be a lottery pick. He’s only played 33 games in the past two seasons combined. LeVert won’t be healthy until after the draft, so his inability to work out for teams his hurt his stock even more.

That doesn’t mean he won’t be a productive NBA player. Based on talent alone, LeVert’s a first round pick. He shot over 40% from three-point range and averaged 4.0 assists per 40 minutes for his career.

He improved as a ball handler and defender during each season and can now play some point guard in the league and guard multiple positions.
